How many times do you walk your dog?

Topic • 34 replies

How many times do you walk your dog? Do you do it in the morning, evening or both? I tend to go out in the evening after my meal it allows me to relax for the evening.

I am lucky to have a fenced in half acre for my two doggies, but I do walk them after work, afternoon. They love taking a stroll around the neighborhood and our local park. It is a nice bonding experience for us.

When travelling with dogs, ensure, for your safety and theirs, that they are properly restrained. I purchased my Dodge Ram Truck with my dogs in mind, as it had rear seats that folded up and a metal storage platform that folded down. I use one soft mesh cra...
